Preparation is half the battle.
How many consumables and special ammunition are we bringing?

All of them!

And SWAT still has to prepare. Are the guns ready?

They are calling for the best, and the BEST are responding!

NOTE: all in attendance will get the opportunity to make things worse for SWAT during The Siege of Gallowspire. All it will take is the proper donation! More details to come!

I'll run it for the story, doubt I'll take any opportunity to play it.

That’s right, you’ll run it.

I believe you have a date with destiny in Minnesota.

I should update that to 'only playing Pathfinder in controlled groups'.

Also, I hope to run for S.W.A.T. someday.

Challenge accepted!

A table will be set aside at SkålCon for this.

Actually, S.W.A.T. (a cop-themed group out of Minnesota) all chose halfling to be their secret language so that they can all communicate with one another without enemies knowing what they are saying! In their opinion, halfling is the language every Pathfinder should learn as a secret tongue.

Hmm

Well, that might be stretching it a bit, However, it is the language that we all speak, and only rarely has it not been a good choice.

Something about no one pays attention to anyone speaking halfling, so our tactical coordination is ignored.

"Guns are a tool. If you let a tool use you, then you are a tool." says SWAT's K9 Specialist.

"My team has handled every situation they've been in, and we all use guns. Some use the guns better than others. We have had our share of bad luck, but we've also had a lot of good luck. We don't let perps escape."

Hey Rikki! Is S.W.A.T. still level 6, as indicated by your profile? If so, I think we could have fun in #9-09 Beyond the Halflight Path... You’d be cops, in Kaer Maga, on the case of something weird. I really think that would be perfect for all of you.

Hmm

We've hit level 7 for the most part. Which still would work.

And we've suggested this would be a good choice of scenario

I'm not sure how S.W.A.T. could manage that many misfires in a combat and maintain a PG-13 rating. **Imagines every action cop movie ever**

Pretty sure we didn't. Good thing this was at a private game.

I have never built a gunslinger.

Though... I keep hearing stories of the EPIC group of Minnesota cop characters (S.W.A.T.) that were all built with one level of gunslinger and then any other class to develop their cop persona. They keep promising that I’ll get to GM for them someday, then dashing my poor little GM hopes...

Yes, I know that I am asking for it. Bring me S.W.A.T.!

”Abadar, she knows not for what she asks.” Rikki shakes her head...

And that is at least one level of gunslinger. Rikki is MM3, UC Monk1, Hunter 3.

Oh, and I think we hold the record for most misfires in a combat (11), and in a scenario(13)

"It does have to be said, of course, that while it is difficult to really get the feel of a gun until you train enough to get the fast musket training, it clear from the success of Pathfinder S.W.A.T., that it isn't necessary.

"Guns are lethal, doncha know?"

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

"No! Crunch! Halflings are people, not food!"

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

"Crunch and I stand ready, Officer Hill. These miscreant have a history..."

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

"Be kind, Dicky. Some folks are slower than molasses in Irrisen, and it isn't their fault. He can't help it he speaks poorer Taldan than Crunch!"

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

Is there going to be a SWAT sighting this convention?

Maybe, but I doubt it.

Wow, the legendary SWAT?! I guess I have a one in six chance of scoring that group at my table... better odds than most things. (Besides, it's better to be the loud table than to be next to them...)

Sounds like someone just volunteered!

We promise that there WILL be theme music, and that there WILL be a required coffee break. Mayhem is just a bonus.

Grand Lodge

"Officers! Please!" barks Gunderson, while Crunch's hackles are rising. "We will find some tasty donuts and coffee for our union mandated break. And drinking while on duty is something we would never do, right?"

As long as we get through the introductions in the first hour or so, we'll be fine.

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

No one expects us to know halfling. Not even the halflings! Though it was a little embarrassing during the mission in [REDACTED] that we needed to adjust to the halflings we found there.

Sasquatch just sounds too much like drunken Ulfen men when they are out carousing. Not something I need to hear on a daily basis.

again heard at the table from @Jolene, "I still need Dick!"

Dick Shaft replies, "What?"

Grand Lodge

... "..it burns a little..." says the GM about the Calistrian.

Grand Lodge

Overheard at the table, Jolene needs Dick?

Followed by "Who's this pussy sitting in my chair?" from Dick Shaft!

Grand Lodge

Rikki turns to he military man Lord Rothos, suggesting they might meet Cairnlands later, to "discuss" the strategies of defending Absalom. She gives him a wink, and then turns to "influence" Scion Lord Kerkis next!

I can't believe I volunteered for this. Wait yes I can. It's mostly fun. ;)

You begged, pleaded, cajoled.

You got what you deserved!

Overheard at the banquet... "Why don't we give her the Dick Shaft?"

Grand Lodge

"Dicky, you got access to Remove Disease, yet?" Rikki asks the Sarenrite. "If so, I'll bet Ri'chard's mom will have use of you."

Grand Lodge

Rikki looks at Mel, shakes her head in a way suggesting that he should just back away and be safe.

Grand Lodge

As Dicky seems to be trying to fast talk the gnome, the other officers in the team remind him that they are supposed to be making a good impression. It then dawns on the K9 cop that Ri'chard's mom would not be polishing a shrine...

Grand Lodge

"Wow, Abadar is getting it on in this shrine!" says Rikki, when she notices that the four gods I the shrine contains the Lord of the First Vault, Calistria, Sheylin, and Desna. After she dusts the Abadaran altar, she asks, "You wanna polish the Calistrian shrine, Ri'chard? At least in deference to your mom?"

Grand Lodge

"Down, boy! " Rikki calls out to Crunch, her K9 partner. "Not everyone understands your investigative tactics."

The wolf walks bounds back to Rikki, but not before walking behind Dicky, talking. Quick sniff. The wolf cringes in a way seldom seen in a canine, and before he lifts his leg, Rikki shouts, "No!"

Grand Lodge

"Boys, we have a mission to take care of. Let's be at our best, like we did up in Alabastrine. The Society needs the best, screw all the rest. "

Rikki makes sure that Crunch has had his fun with his current chew toy, a certain scoundrel that goes by the name of Harv.

I would say Profession Cop is the most valuable, but I'm biased.

I also have profession Barkeep which I have used to great effect.

No, you are not. Profession:Cop is where it is at. Usual room in many situations.

Many fewer than profession barkeep. Don't know how the world keeps letting that happen.

Grand Lodge

"Probably a 'social disease'." mutters Rikki through her beer.

Meanwhile, Crunch happily chews on the leg bone, trying to get every bit of flavor off of it before he cracks it open.

Grand Lodge

"It's true. Never trust a Varisian to get you good powder. We need to stick with the dwarves... they never let us down. In powder or beer." The Ulfen woman downs her stout, as she contemplates the offer from the Hellknights. She just shakes her head at the thought. No, she is a member of SWAT, and that's what she'll remain.

"Say, Serpico, you got a joint or somethin' for Crunch here to chew on? Don't want him gettin' any ideas around here."

Grand Lodge

"Dix, we'll need to find a new source of our gunpowder and cartridges. Those we got before that mission were crap. I can't believe we saw twelve misfires. I swear that those Hellknights cursed us. Either that, or it was that miserable weather.

"Gimme something to forget that crap.

"At least Crunch seems to be working out. "

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

Rikki screams as she lunges for Ri'Chard. "He wasn't a beaver! He was a WOLVERINE!!" The K9 Specialist shows as much fury as her first companion once did as she goes for the hair and face of the team's equipment specialist.

Grand Lodge

"That's always a good thing, isn't it Dicky? I think we're all getting over the last rescue mission we had. That wasn't a pretty sight. Goldy II wouldn't even go into the one room we saw. Not that I would blame him... I still wake up smelling dretch. That is one smell you never get over." The blonde K9 specialist shakes her head, trying to dislodge the memory.

"Set me up with a stiff one, Dicky. And no, I mean a drink. I ain't Ri'Chard's ma, after all."

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

"Boys? Boys? I may not parade around in slinky dresses and high heels like Ri'Chard does, but my reproductive organs are on the inside instead of the outside. Watch your pronouns, Mr. Internal Affairs, or I might have to contact HR."

"Muser, don't matter if you're at a con or not. As we said, we pulled off a 56 minute briefing in a 5 hour slot... and finished early. Now, we were all surprised when [redacted] tried to [redacted] a bunch of [redacted]. The looks on our faces were priceless."

"Of course, it was also a thing of beauty when the one had us look over his [redacted] and it was my skill in being a cop that won the day. The fact that he didn't think of [redacted] when he created the [redacted] was astounding."

Damn IA... always marking up our reports...

Grand Lodge 4/5 5/55/5 ****

You should have seen the SWAT team at Paizo Con. At the table of Bid for Alabastrine, it literally took 56 minutes to get through the briefing. All due to role playing. And that was with a time limit. However, we managed to complete the scenario with flying colors, and that included our mandatory coffee break (with donuts) halfway through the scenario.

That was on a Sunday morning, after the banquet the big before. It was a blast!
